The odds to win the NBA Finals have recently been updated and are listed below. The Golden State Warriors are heavy favorites to repeat as champions next year. Even more so since signing DeMarcus Cousins. Their biggest contenders right now are the Boston Celtics and Houston Rockets, followed by the LA Lakers with their recent acquisition of LeBron James. They still trail the Celtics in the East, but that could change early on if LeBron proves to be a good fit.
The latest Finals odds from 5Dimes are listed below. The change column represents how much a team’s odds have improved or decreased since our last update (8/17). Our Power Index represents the approximate points a team would be favored by against an average NBA team. For example, the Warriors (6.8) versus the Wizards (0.4) on a neutral court should have an approximate line of the Warriors -6. This is of course only a starting point for the line, but it should give you a good place to start when estimating matchup odds. Finally, our NBA Finals column is the probability each team will win the NBA Finals as implied by their current market odds.
